San Marco, a one time fling.

San Marco, not as good as you would think. So we decided to give Zante town a little visit as we wanted to go to the amazing farmers fruit and veg market. While there we decided to take a short walk into the actual town and get a spot of lunch, not a huge one as we decided as it was our last full day we would have a massive dinner, as you do. We looked at a few places and instantly struck a few off the list after pestering people in the doorways. We saw San Marco in the main square and it looked busy, we decided to give it a go.  All I can say is that looks can be deceiving. We found our seats and took a look at the menu, while doing so a waitress swept past us with immense speed and we had been left…

Papillon, Greek food done right.

Papillon, Greek infused food goodness. So this time around we decided to try a few new restaurants. With new restaurants came new food, like garlic spiked mussels, but I will come to that later. We had a walk around Argassi and came across Papillon, just next door to Zorbas. We decided to give it a go at dinner time and see how well the place actually was, the boards outside made it look fantastic and so far they are the only place I know that does take away; I could be wrong but this made the place that little bit better for me. After all you don’t have Hungry House for Greece. We got shown to our seats by some very helpful staff, all smiles which is great. I find good service in Zante, Greece to be a little hit and miss. Some places we have been in are amazing,…

Angelos, the best tourist gift shop in Argassi.

Angelos, tourist and gift shop. Let me tell you about Angelos! Three years now we have been coming to the beautiful island that is Zante. Although you will see most of my travel reviews about restaurants I thought it was time to switch it up a little. There are so many tourist shops in Zante and quite a few in Argassi, on the top of my head I can count 10 but I’m sure there are more. We however on our very first trip found an amazing shop with the most amazing owners ever. You find that if you visit you will walk past a lot of shops and they will literally try and drag you in just to buy whatever they are pushing at the time. By the time they have finally convinced you to look about they decide that they best way to get you to spend your…

Peppermint, the hidden oasis of Argassi!

Let me tell you about a little hidden oasis that situates within the wonderful town of  Argassi, Peppermint. If you have read my other Greece articles, you will see that I love to try the various restaurants in the area where I stay. I wouldn’t have found out about this wonderful restaurant if it wasn’t for the amazing owner Katrina at the Diana Palace Hotel. She suggested that we try the Peppermint and booked us a table. We looked forward to trying somewhere that came so highly recommended. Now depending on how fast you walk, the Peppermint is located around 10/15 minutes from the hotel, this however is no problem because you can go for a nice walk in the heat and take in everything around you; to be fair if I knew how good the restaurant actually was I would have walked double! When we arrived we were greeted…

The best restaurant in Argassi, Dionysos!

Dionysos So if you took my advice and decided to stay at the amazing Diana Palace, then you will need somewhere to eat, even if you are all inclusive it is sometimes nice to venture out and try other places. Well if you do not want to travel to far but want to experience some of the best food on the island, then look no further, take a right on your way out of the hotel towards the back and you will come across the amazing Dionysos! The restaurant is magnificent and unlike any other that I was able to find on the entire island, for us our total favourite and we plan on coming here at least twice in our week away this year! The food and quality of service are like nothing you could find elsewhere! The food is mouthwatering and divine; we find it a struggle to…
